    They need to rest after only their first growing season. No water and cool temps all winter, some species need watering earlier than others, often just a light spray at first to get them going is best. Some of these actually survive in the wild on fog, with practically no rain.

    Cacti seeds.

    I've planted them this year in J Arthur Bower’s cactus compost. I see plants like it. Before I used 100% peat based compost plus sand. And the covering - stones from the seashore.

    Epiphyllum

    Seeing signs of new growth on all the plants, just giving them a bit of gentle watering, does anyone feed their plants when young? I never used too.
